Aflete meets Gracie Love, the bright young entrepreneur and lifestyle coach who believes strongly in balance and harmony between food, health and fitness for our happiness and well-being.Gracie reaches out to women to inspire them with words, recipes and life advice across her social media so we were very fortunate to steal a little of her time for this interview.
Q – For those who don’t know you can you give us a little introduction?
Absolutely. My name is Gracie. I am a lover, an entrepreneur, and a plant-based fruitarian. I am an Online Lifestyle Coach who helps women create balance in all aspects of their lives.
Q – You are a lifestyle coach – yet you give lots of inspiration and beauty advice for free on social media – what made you want to reach out to inspire other women?
Honestly, I give away all of my tips and advice towards creating a healthy, balanced lifestyle because I wish I had that when I was in chaos. It fuels me to know that I have created a safe place for women to ask questions and seek advice.
Q – You put a lot of focus on balance in people’s lives – how do you go about helping people achieve a balance or at least a better understanding of how interconnected our well-being is between nutrition, fitness, happiness and confidence.
First, I take our interaction from social media to a one-on-one basis. This way the women I work with are more confident in sharing their struggles and fears. We then discuss their short-term and long-term goals – whether they be nutrition, fitness, finance, or an overall lifestyle makeover. And that’s true, everything we ingest and surround ourselves by is completely interconnected.
Q – Do you have a personal story for how you found your balance?
Yes. Growing up, my family had very little money and I constantly struggled with all aspects of my life. I was twice the size I am today and completely unaware of how deceptive the food and fitness industries are. It got to a point where I needed to take matters into my own hands and start asking the hard questions until I found the truth. Today, after years of trial and error, I am healthier than I ever thought possible. I believe beauty and health radiate from the inside, out.
Q – Do you believe that each person has a unique balance or are there common threads which enable you to give people general advice?
I believe every single woman has a unique set of goals and aspirations – but I believe the same general steps / path towards true health and balance apply to everyone. I am not a believer in “everybody is different.” We are all of the same species and are therefore connected in the ways our bodies scientifically operate.
Q – How did you become a Beachbody coach? What is it that you enjoy most about the work?
I was a customer of Beachbody for a long time. I loved working out from home using body-weight exercises. I decided to Coach because I believed in the company. Today, after two years with the company, I am now in the Top Percentile and have created financial freedom for myself and my husband. I did this by coaching women interested in creating what I have done, in a shorter amount of time than I did.
Q – Who is your nutrition hero/heroine? Would you pay to see what they eat on a daily basis?
Haha – I would have to say Dr. Douglas Graham, author of The 80/10/10 diet. He’s so full of wisdom and compassion. I also adore Loni Jane (@lonijane on Instagram). She’s perfection.
Q – Do you think a social platform dedicated to food, health and fitness (such as Aflete) would have any advantages or disadvantages over the current avenues for food sharing?
It is an absolute advantage to have a social media platform in this day and age. Everyone is on their smartphones. Everyone is on social media. I honestly believe that if your business is not online – you’re done.
Q – Can you promote yourself / your accounts – how can people keep up with you?
My first love will always be Instagram – so I am there every day all day at @gracielove. I can also be reached via Facebook.com/gracieloveofficial.
